Arenal Manoa Resort is tucked away off the main road between La Fortuna and the Arenal volcano. It is a few miles past the town and we had a bit of trouble finding the sign for it but were rewarded with beautifully landscaped grounds, a huge spa pool, commodious room and excellent breakfasts. From the beautiful restaurant with views onto...

When it's sunny and clear, the view of the volcano is breathtaking. Unfortunately, our 1st three days here were complete wash-outs and we couldn't see a thing; thankfully, the weather cleared up just as we were packing up and we finally saw the volcano. We spent the morning taking photo after photo--most right from our patio. We never swam in...

Great location, just a few minutes drive into town. This is a large spacious resort. The room was clean and reasonable size and the bathroom was huge. All the staff were very helpful and cheerful.

We stayed here for 3 nights earlier this week and it was pretty good. Pros: Arenal volcano views (2 days cloudy, 1 day clear), pool (empty both times we went), parking next to bungalow, lush beautiful grounds, buffet breakfast, location centrally located between La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano Cons: Unreliable and weak WiFi (signal strongest by restaurant/pool), rooms need updating...

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It's located about 10 minutes away from La Fortuna and 20 minutes from the Arenal Volcano park. It's also right across the street from El Benedicto's, a charming restaurant in a converted farmhouse up a windy narrow mountain road. It's also very close to numerous hot springs and the Sky Trek zip...
